I do not think that there is anything better in this world than freshly baked bread, especially my Easy Homemade French Bread.
Well, my dutch oven for beginners and no-knead bread recipes are amazing, as well.
Anyhow, after many trials and fails, I finally got a winning recipe. I take pride in my bread recipes, so I tested this bread many times. This recipe is more of a “store-bought” copy-cat recipe rather than a true French artisan crunchy baguette.
With that being said, it is still very delicious bread that I know you will love.
Anyhow, you guys seem to love my easy bread recipes and that makes me so happy. Trust me, you do not have to be a rocket scientist to bake a loaf of bread.
Yes, we all have to measure it in the beginning, but later you will just know what is what.
I must say, without bragging that I probably could make bread with my eyes closed. Well, that’s because I have been baking bread for a very long time.
Not that I am old as a bible, but I was 12 going toward 13 years old when I made my first bread.
I am almost 40 years old, so you see it has been a while since I made my first bread with the messy kitchen and flour all over the floor.
It was a rather unforgettable experience, and as you would typically expect to see on the I Love Lucy show.
With that being said, I have grown a bit and you can say got some experience making bread.
You can make this bread dough with a stand mixer using hook attachment however, you may use a bowl and a wooden spoon as well as your trusty hands to knead it.
I must admit my kids and husband are just like me. We love bread so much, but ever since we went low carb I avoid making it.
The only reason I would bake bread these days is to bring to my neighbors or friends.
However, sometimes I just dearly crave it. I use it my treat. It is nostalgia so I make a couple that we usually finish eating in one day. I know! We have a problem.

Thank you so much in advance. I cannot wait to see your creations.
Just to add, as some found it quite unusual that I add oil to my dough. I like the dough much better with a drizzle of oil, however, traditional long baguette or French Bread does not contain any oil or fat whatsoever.
My mother-in-law only uses 4 ingredients to make bread; yeast, flour, salt, and water. Your bread will come out just as good.
